Early spring, autumn and a good part of winter are a stunning time of year here on the Gold Coast, with perfect temperatures and clear blue skies in the middle of the days. It’s my favourite times of the year to be out and about doing stuff like day trips and picnics.

Now that we are into Spring here the mornings start off a little cool, but by mid morning you can certainly feel quite comfortable with short sleeves or singlets. I’m utterly in love with my new to me cotton seersucker maxi skirt (which I like to think looks like a picnic tablecloth) that was gifted to me by one of my best vintage gal pals Celia of Kittys Vintage Kitsch.

I’m thankful that this maxi skirt had a generous hem on it of over several inches which I let down so that it just sweeps the floor. I teamed the red and white check with navy and white stripes and a match made in heaven was made.

This is what I call an easy, simple, go to wear for me on a busy morning of getting ready with the kids and getting out the door to do all things that need to be done. It’s a combination in various forms that will get plenty of action of spring and summer that’s for sure.

    Thanks Vix. I think the skirt does all the work to make it look that way! But it's exactly that this is such an easy wear I could put it on the dark, hopping around on one leg.

    Isn't it. Celia knows me so well and it fits me like a dream at the waist, not even a thought of having to take it in or letting it out. Red, white and blue always makes me think of our beloved Helga, because lets face she is the queen of that combo, is she not?
